Bishop Miege 62, Spring Hill 14
Quarterback Carter Putz threw five touchdown passes as the Stags ran away from the Broncos from the get-go, leading 34-0 after the first quarter and 55-0 at halftime.

Putz, the Kansas state high school record-holder for touchdown passes, opened the scoring with a 17-yard touchdown pass to Phillippe Wesley, then hit Peyton Hamrick with a 55-yard strike for a 14-0 lead. Brison Cobbins made it 21-0 with a 9-yard touchdown run before Putz tossed touchdown passes of 46 and 24 yards to Daniel Jackson for a 34-0 lead.

Cameron Clark scored on a 6-yard run in the second quarter before Putz found Quinn Schieber on a 12-yard touchdown pass. Miege freshman Sheron Manning scored his first two varsity touchdowns on runs of 24 and 62 yards.

Spring Hill, which scored two late touchdowns, ended its season at 2-7.

Olathe South 30, Shawnee Mission Northwest 21
Running back Tyler Cavil scored four touchdowns as the Falcons became the fourth Olathe high school to win a Class 6A playoff game.

The Falcons got out to a 24-7 lead on Cavil’s 43-yard touchdown run with 10:45 left in the third quarter. Shawnee Mission Northwest (4-5) came back with a touchdown midway though the third quarter and added another score with 6:52 left in the game to cut the lead to 24-21. But Cavil’s 8-yard touchdown run with 2:22 left and a late interception by Jamison Phelps sealed the win.

After SM Northwest took an early 7-0 lead, Cavil scored on a 35-yard touchdown run to tie the game, then punched it in from 4 yards out for a 14-7 lead early in the second quarter. Adam Young’s field goal as time expired sent Olathe South into halftime with a 17-7 lead.

Olathe South (4-5) will play at 6-3 Blue Valley in the regionals next Friday.

Olathe North, Olathe East and Olathe Northwest also advanced in the 6A playoffs. First-year Olathe West will field its first varsity football team next season.

Lawrence 28, Blue Valley Northwest 27
The Lions thwarted BV Northwest’s two-point conversion try with 1:31 left in the game to advance to the 6A state regionals, where they will play at 6-3 Olathe North next Friday.

BV Northwest’s Garrett Parks scored a 20-yard touchdown to cut the Lawrence lead to 28-27, but Caleb Mondi and Sam Bart converged on the game-winning tackle on the two-point try. Mondi then recovered the ensuing onside kick to seal the win.

Lawrence (5-4) took a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. Dante Jackson scored on the game’s first play from scrimmage with a 64-yard touchdown run. Hunter Krom followed a few minutes later with a 1-yard touchdown plunge. Just before halftime, BV Northwest’s Edward Thomas scored on a 4-yard run to cut the lead to 14-7.

It was a seesaw battle the rest of the way. Angel Garcia’s 50-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter gave Lawrence a 21-7 lead. The Huskies (2-7) answered with Jackson Heath’s 4-yard touchdown run midway through the third before Garcia scored on a 2-yard run with 8:11 left in the game. Two minutes later, Parks hauled in a tipped screen pass and ran 43 yards for a touchdown, cutting the Lions’ lead to 28-21.

St. Thomas Aquinas 52, Harmon 0
Tyron “Tank” Young scored four touchdowns to lead the 8-1 Saints into next Friday’s Class 5A regional playoff game against 5-4 Bonner Springs, which defeated Blue Valley Southwest 10-7.

Aquinas led 35-0 after the first quarter and 52-0 at halftime. Drew Hicks scored on a 56-yard touchdown run on the game’s first play from scrimmage. Will Swanson then hit Tristan Davis with a 38-yard touchdown pass.

Young followed with four straight scores on runs of 2, 6, 2 and 35 yards. Hudson Pflumm’s 35-yard field goal and Preston Cowley’s 13-yard touchdown run accounted for the rest of the scoring.

Rashawn Rawlings led Harmon (0-9) with 31 yards on nine carries and 30 yards on four receptions.
